As the Georgian age began, the surgeons and surgical
students of London were increasingly unwilling to just watch
anatomies. They wanted to dissect for themselves. But with
people unwilling to donate their bodies and the legal
supplies of corpses limited, where could the surgeons get
their subjects from? Someone was waiting in the shadow...
Enter the professional Resurrection Men, who crept into the
London burial grounds at night and raised the dead to supply
the dissecting rooms of London's flourishing medical
schools. Hear the stories of some of the body snatchers,
learn some of the tricks of the their trade and how much a
body was worth, and discover what happened when the appetite
for anatomical subjects ended with murder.
